What You Need

Brownies:

3/4 cup whole wheat flour

3/4 cup cocoa powder (unsweetened)

1/4 tsp baking powder

1/4 tsp salt

2 Tbsp coconut oil

1/2 cup maple syrup (agave works, too)

1/4 cup nonfat plain greek yogurt

2 large eggs

1 tsp pure vanilla extract

Frosting:

1/3 cup dark chocolate chips

2 Tbsp almond milk at room temperature

1/4 cup nonfat plain greek yogurt

2 Tbsp unsweetened cocoa powder

2 Tbsp dark cocoa powder

Step by Step

Make your Brownies:

1. Preheat your oven to 300 degrees.

2. Prep an 8×8 or 9×9 inch aluminum pan with nonstick spray.l, and set aside.

3. Prep two large mixing bowls. In one, combine your dry ingredients: flour, cocoa powder, baking powder, and salt. In the second bowl, whisk together your eggs, oil, syrup, yogurt, and vanilla until smooth.

3. Pour your dry ingredients into your wet ingredients a little at a time and mix until incorporated. Don’t overmix.

4. Pour you batter into your greased pan and spread.

5. Bake for 15-18 minutes. You want these fudgy so don’t overbake. They won’t look completely ready but they will firm up as they cool.

6. Let the brownies sit for 8-10 hours or overnight to cool completely and firm up.

Make your frosting:

1. Microwave your chocolate chips on high for 20-30 seconds. Stir and repeat until fully melted.

2. Once completely melted, add in the almond milk, yogurt, and powders. Stir until smooth.

3. Spread on top of your cooled brownies.

Enjoy!
